Pictures are worth a thousand words, indeed.

For months, rumors have swirled around the auto industry regarding a supposed Roadster that is being worked on by MINI. Now, pictures of the rumored car have surfaced, quelling any and all speculations that the car was nothing more than just a myth.

While the photo sheds nothing more than what the Roadster will presumably look like –it does bear a striking resemblance to the other car MINI unveiled a few days ago, the Coupe Concept.

MINI hasn’t divulged a lot of information about the car, but should the tarpaulin-printed photo of the supposed MINI Roadster proves to be legitimate, then you can probably expect that the Concept Coupe will not be the only vehicle MINI is set to unveil at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

This is one of the best mini I have ever seen. I can still smell the peculiarities of the original mini. But the nose and its really big wheels made all the difference. It’s really cute.

This should be good news for Mr. Bean. Kidding aside, with the Frankfurt Motorshow almost at hand, I’m sure MINI would come up with a teaser to verify if this is actually true or not.

After all the super cars, coupes and sedans that I say I want to own, the Mini roadster is something that I want the most. And for some reason, I haven’t bought one for myself.

The MINI roadster is an icon back in the 1960s. It would forever excite any car enthusiasts what they are up to and how they plan to stay on top.
